When I started thinking about this trip almost two years ago, I planned to start biking at the tip of Italy, and biking the entire Mediterranean coasts of Italy, France, and Spain. I decided that while I was in Italy, I would be so anxious to get to France and start speaking French that I probably wouldn’t really appreciate Italy.
Then I figured that I would start in the French city with an airport closest to the Italian border, so that I could bike the entire coast of France. I decided I would start in Nice and started looking at cities in Spain to end in.
I thought Madrid would be a good city to end in, but then I saw a photo of the Guggenheim in Bilbao and I knew I didn’t want to miss seeing that city. So, I bought my airline ticket for Nice and Bilbao and now this is my *very rough* plan
I also want to bike in Eastern Europe if I can get a cheap flight there.
Big Thanks to Doug for showing me how to put this interactive map on my site!
It would be really awesome if I could figure out a way to have users leave comments as points on the map, like suggestions for places for me to go. If anyone knows if this is possible, let me know!
